Is everyone else in Canberra just as frustrated with the new ASIC management of businesses as I am?? I cannot imagine which bureaucrat decided to create the system, but it simply doesn’t work, the log-in via ASIC connect, and then the attempts to link businesses and companies simply don’t work…..You can’t call them, so I [...]

They decided that complaining to each other wasn’t good enough and, thanks to the power and immediacy of social media, March in March 2014 was born. This grassroots [...]
